THE STORY:

(From wiki) Ataxia (from Greek α- [a negative prefix] + -τάξις [order] = "lack of order"), is a neurological sign consisting of lack of voluntary coordination of muscle movements. Ataxia is a non-specific clinical manifestation implying dysfunction of the parts of the nervous system that coordinate movement, such as the cerebellum. Several possible causes exist for these patterns of neurological dysfunction.

Various forms of Ataxia impact hundreds of thousands of people. Hardly anyone knows about it because there are many different forms of Ataxia and they exhibit very different symptoms and have different names. They all however have one major thing in common - they are incurable. My family found this out the hard way a number of years ago when my mom got diagnosed with this dreadful condition. My mom passed away last year and I would like to dedicate this run to her. 

Please help me in raising money for this foundation that funds various research and studies related to finding the cause and cure for various forms of Ataxia. Thank you.
